"The soul never dies."
10 July 2013 | by Reno-RanganSee all my reviews

It was a cancer theme movie which was adopted from a children's novel. It tells about a wish list that made by two kids who are dying from Leukemia. Those kids help each others to fulfill their last wishes. Light hearted emotional tale. All the cast performed well. Few animated clips come now and then throughout the movie to explain stuffs.

As a movie for under agers the illness treatment and death was kept under control. Adults may complain about few things in the movie but should remember its children friendly theme.

Well made movie which shows on a different perspective of illness suffering and grief. It could be a good pick for tearjerkers but still it won't fulfill completely. Like I said a children movie about awareness of leukemia and its treatment.
